, overall defense spending will go up. there's a split among republicans. if you ask john mccain that, he'll say do not touch defense spending, you to do away with forced cuts. there definitely is what this is exposing is a real tug-of-war within the gop over one of the main goals which is getting rid of the deficit and debt and that means reduce spending everywhere and historically, at least, since the reagan years, wanted to beef up and continue to beef up the defense department. there's no question. one thing i want to mention on this whole idea of what you said, suzanne, which is stage craft by the president, what i'm hearing from democrats on capitol hill, why are you doing this two days before? where were you with your bully pulpit out there warning about these cuts and making the case we need to get rid of them beforeha beforehand? people remember the president saying these cuts won't go through. there is frustration. >> summer 2011 that's when everybody knew this was going to happen. i want to bring in jess to talk about that. it's no accident he's at newport news. tell us what is
and john mccain are going to the white house. they're going to have a meeting with the president on immigration, but during the gaggle, the free-flowing with the pool, the back and forth between the white house press secretary and the traveling press corps, they did say sequester would likely come up in that conversation between mccain, graham, and the president. any chance that those three could strike a deal? >> i can't -- sorry. >> i will say very quickly, i don't see how even if they did how we would avert the sequester on friday, chuck. congress doesn't work like that. this seems to be at least the possible opening engagement of the talks of a deal. i mean, that's the amazing thing about sequester. >> we can't even schedule talks. >> negotiations have broken down. no, negotiations never began. having them break down would actually be a step in the right direction. >> swraent even had -- >> we have seen this movie before where what will happen in the final day or two as they come to some agreement not on any kind of a deal in terms of addressing the underlying issue, but mere
the cuts. i don't know. does that have any chance, ed? >> not necessarily. we talked to john mccain at length after a vote on the senate floor. he said, why would we spend months approving an authorization bill only for the defense secretary to decide where to make cuts? so i think you would see some republican resistance to that kind of a plan on top of a potential democratic opposition. that's one republican proposal. the democratic proposal which may get a vote later this week would end direct payments to farmers which was part of the bipartisan farm bill passed last year, one of the few bipartisan things to get through the senate and died in the house. the other thing democrats would do is raise taxes on the wealthy. that also expected to fail in the senate. >> all right. we're waiting to hear from nancy pelosi as we just heard from speaker boehner. i want to bring in a republican of virginia and member of the armed services committee. good morning, congressman. >> good morning, chris. how are you? >> the impact in virginia would be 90,000 civilians furloughed from d.o.d., army

a deal to prevent sequestration. >> president obama is meeting with top senate republicans, john mccain and lipped say graham today to discuss immigration reform. however, the possibility has been raised that sequestration will be discussed as well f budget cuts do not kick in on friday, the unemployed and local governments will be the first to take a hit. long-term unemployed people could see their weekly checks decrisis by $30. both sides are calling on each other to do something soon. >> congress is poised to allow a series of arbitrary, automatic budget cuts to kick in that will slow our economy, eliminate good jobs and leave a lot of folks who are already pretty thinly stretched scrambling to figure out what to do. these cuts do not have to happen. >> it is time to cut spending here in washington. the president was serious, he would sit down with harry reid and begin to address our problems. >> we will talk to local lawmakers, congressman rob whitman of virginia and congressman chris van hollen of maryland with their perspective on the likelihood of a deal being done on time. >>>
